Husband:  Richard Johnson DAVIS
Birth:  Dec 1810, KY
Death:  11 Nov 1903, San Antonio, Bexar Co., TX
Disposition:  buried City Cemetery #2, San Antonio, Bexar Co., TX

Given Richard's age when he married in 1840, it's likely he had a marriage prior to Susan.

Marriage-1:  8 Oct 1840, Woodford Co., KY
Wife-1:  Susan B. PARRISH

Numerous secondary sources have Susan dying in 1887 and being buried in San Antonio, TX, but it was not our subject's wife, Susan (PARRISH) DAVIS, who died in 1887, it was his daughter, Susan Parrish DAVIS (see below).

Wife-2:  Sarah Ann / Anne / Annie WARE
Birth:  29 Jun 1828, Hopkinsville, Christian Co., KY
